Update 2020: Setapp for iOS as an app subscription for iPhone and iPad

In the meantime, Setapp is not only available for macOS on the Apple Mac, but also as an additional function for a few euros more per month for iOS / iPadOS. The apps available for this are noted in a separate category in the Mac app. You can get it on mobile devices at no additional cost (except for the Setapp subscription) by scanning the QR codes displayed on the Mac, iMac or MacBook. I have shown you the extended offer in detail here: Setapp for iPhone and iPad - iOS app flat rate like on a Mac.

What if I already have some of the apps on offer installed?
Of course, these apps can still be used in the original version. Or you can simply switch to the SetApp version, which has some advantages. For example, there is no advertising, no in-app purchases and large (and small) updates as well as annual updates are included. In addition to the existing programs, there is also other useful software.

If I buy a new Mac, can I transfer SetApp?
Yes of course. To do this, SetApp can simply be deactivated on the old Mac. It is then simply reinstalled and activated on the new computer.

    No added value compared to the Setapp website. In particular, both are silent about what happens after a subscription is canceled.

      Hello Jurgen! What do you mean, "what happens if the subscription is canceled"? I think it is obvious what happens ... that happened after every subscription that you cancel: You no longer receive the service. In other words, you will no longer be able to use the apps that you obtained via SetApp (unless you buy them outside of SetApp).
      But if you mean something else, I'll be happy to ask support. I am already trying to clarify any questions that might be open.
      LG! Jens

        Hi Jens,

        that was exactly the reason to visit your site. But here it is almost literally what is on the Setapp page.

        That being said, I've been buying the apps I'm interested in for a long time. So my question was almost academic.

        Still, thanks for the clarification.

        Best Regards
        Jürgen

          Hello Jurgen! Sorry if it seems redundant to you. But we wanted to introduce the service and don't have more information than can be found on the website. I felt like you: I have bought some apps that are often in use in SetApp, but I have also bought them. In the meantime there are updates for some and Ulysses has already started a subscription model. It was easy for me to switch to SetApp. What I didn't consider at the beginning, but what is a nice side effect when you have SetApp: You look through the list more often and try out apps that you would not normally buy separately because they are too cumbersome or expensive, they extra to buy. Sometimes you don't know whether they actually help you in everyday life and with Setapp you can try it out without hesitation and if you like, simply "keep" the app without buying it separately.
          Now we have an information on the page that is not on SetApp. Thanks for your incentive to do so. : D LG! Jens
